Yesterday and today, I've continued riding along Route 30 in Oregon. The trees are tall and thick and there are some pretty serious hills along the way.
There are a lot of logging trucks on the road, which makes sense when you look at the surroundings!
I ended up biking 3.7 miles, then another 2.1 miles for a total of 5.8 miles through the forested hills yesterday.
Today was busy. I am an active volunteer in animal rescue, and today it took up my entire morning and afternoon. But in the early evening, I managed to take two rides, 4.1 miles and 2.5 miles, and rode through two small towns: Westport and Woodson, Oregon. The terrain flattened out a bit and instead of all the hills and mountains, there were some lovely fields and this rustic old barn.
I also got a unique invitation along the road: Eat Jesus Christ. Tuesday at 6 pm. Ok, I will remember that...
Today's 6.6 miles brought my total for Week 1 to 48.1 miles biked. Here is a map of my progress so far over the past 7 days. Every green circle is a spot when I stopped biking, whether to loosen the pedal straps, let my feet rest a minute, or take a longer break to have lunch.
I'm moving along, and I am proud of what I've done so far. This is something I enjoy and I am so glad I got started! Thank you for the support. You can always see real time updates on My Virtual Mission. Heading to bed; I have more biking to do tomorrow!
